"The workingmen of Europe feel sure that, as the American War of Independence initiated a new era of ascendancy for the middle class, so the American Antislavery War will do for the working classes." - Marx

In other words, he predicted that the war would put america on the road to communism.

And what's your answer to that, Walt? I quote you: "Marx actually lays it out pretty well."
